Each year the Mercer Island School District uses various methods to gather feedback from students, parents and staff about the schools’ effectiveness and areas of improvement.
MISD encourages parents to participate and provide feedback. The survey can be found at: www.surveymonkey.com/s/EES2013. The survey deadline has been extended to March 22 to give parents more time to respond.
In order to determine the MISD’s level of performance in comparison to other similar districts and schools in the state, MISD has contracted with the Center for Education Effectiveness to coordinate the survey administration. Students will be taking their survey during the school day within the next few weeks, and staff will take them during faculty meetings.
Now in its fifth year, the Educational Effectiveness Survey (EES) is the primary tool that each school uses to help measure their performance relative to the nine ‘Characteristics of Effective Schools.’ Parents, students and staff complete the EES each year with the results then used for school improvement planning.
